Beautiful Majolica Faience Cabinet Plate ~ Decorated with a Maple Leaf ~ H Boulenger & CO France ( Choisy le Roi )~ 1860-1910
This is a very beautiful majolica plate that was manufactured in Choisy le Roi France. The Choisy-le-Roi faience factory of Choisy-le-Roi, France produced majolica from 1860 until 1910. The firm's wares are not always marked. The common mark is usually a black ink stamped "Choisy-le-Roi" with the large "B". The "H Boulenger" stands for Hippolyte Boulenger a director at the pottery. The factory's work was some of the most delicate produced in France.
This plate has a beautifully glossy finish and a wonderful golden and brown color. A huge maple leaf covers 90 % of this plate. Around the raised outline of the leaf a deeper brown color has been applied making the image really pop out. Lighter gold has been used to define the veins of the leaf. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection.
Backstamp: H within a large B with Choisy le Roi
Measures: 8 ¾”
